Sunflower Wedding Invitations


I had the opportunity to create wedding invitations for a friend of a friend of my sister-in-law.  My sister-in-law's wedding was the first time I attempted to create wedding invitations, so I was nervous about accepting this order from someone other than family.

The mother-in-law, mother and bride were so easy to talk with as we created something that the bride was excited to hand out.  The top photo is the final version, but wanted to share with you all the versions I came up with (below).  The bride wanted sunflowers on her invitations, so I gave her 3 to choose from:
 


After choosing the one they liked the best. She wanted a pocket card invitation, so with the photo above you can definitely see the pocket card design. 

I created the pocket card out of 12x12 cardstock. I cut 2" from the bottom. On the Simply Scored Plate - I scored on 2.25" and 7.25".... and I rotated it 90 degrees (counter- clockwise) and scored on 7". With the scoring done, I trimmed the bottom piece to only include the pocket part. 

Here is what the closed invitation looks like:

I'm so happy that they are pleased with the results of all my hard work.
Thanks for looking!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Sets - Flower Patch
Paper - Night of Navy, Delightful Dijon, Crushed Curry
Ink - Delightful Dijon, Chocolate Chip
Accessories - Flower Fair Framelits, Big Shot, Lace Dotted Trim (Delightful Dijon)

I used My Digital Studio to create the inside invitation and response card.
Stamp Set - Noteworthy Labels (by Stampin' Up!)
Embellishments - Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon; Country Sunflowers (by Mandog)
Font - Majestic and Corbel (Night of Navy)

  1. Those sunflower wedding invitations are beautiful. I liked the pocket cards. When I got married, I used a linen type and it made the invites really pop. I paired them with a ribbon and used those glue dots to fix them to the outside. They were closed with a matching favor sticker. They were time consuming but turned out really nice.
